About This Game

Floating Point is a free, peaceful game about using a grappling hook to swing yourself gracefully through randomly generated spaces. In the air, you're fighting gravity. When you splash down beneath the water, you're fighting your own buoyancy to swing yourself further into the depths.

The only objective is to collect points, and the only thing that increases your points is swinging swiftly, smoothly and elegantly without hitting anything. As you pick up momentum, you start to glow, the bars you're collecting rise up, the music kicks in, and your trajectory burns a bright red line in the air, drawing huge, beautiful mathematical curves of your arcing flight.

Also the name is a pun, so that's cool.

Floating Point is an amazing relaxing game which can be played entirely using only the left and right mouse buttons.

The game has a very satisfying and fluid physics system and responsive controls. It's very easy to learn and master, but even inexperienced gamers will have no trouble playing the game, as there are no time limits, no restrictions, it's simply level after level with the only goal being to "collect" every "red bars" on the current level to move on to the next, which is pretty much the same thing over again.

The game is particularly relaxing and a nice "time waster". It's simple, fun, easy to pick up but hard to let go.
It's the kind of game you just launch and play for a few minutes while waiting or doing other tasks, or simply to relax and unwind for a bit. It features an excellent and equally relaxing soundtrack.

And finally, the strongest point for the game? It's absolutely free. No pay-to-win, no exclusive content, no DLCs, you just iniciate the very small download, launch the game, and enjoy it freely. To be honest, I consider this game better than most paid games on Steam. Turns out there are some hidden gems in the free-to-play section of Steam.

The only cons I can think of for this game is the fact that the gameplay can get rather repetitive; No real goal, not much challenge, and it most certainly won't give you much sense of achievement. After a while, just going level-to-level can get slightly boring.

Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this one. It's free, so you know you've got nothing to lose. Heck, I'd recommend it if it were a paid game either ways.

Best game ever. Free-est game of free. You'll be free like a bird.

This game is pretty much an example that not much is needed to make it good. Also, headphones are nice to have.
